Moving Into 2021 with a Positive Mindset
We know everyone has probably been looking forward to farewelling 2020, and welcoming a new year. In uncertain times, we can only hope that the year ahead will be happier and safer.
This year, The Fast 800 welcomed more members into our online programme community and helped so many achieve their health goals. Although there are exciting developments on the horizon, there are many things we will continue to embrace in 2021.
A Mediterranean-style diet
Over the years, many studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest in the world, packed with fibre, protein and healthy fats. Significantly, the PREDIMED trial recognised that a Mediterranean diet had the capability to reduce the risk of chronic disease in participants, specifically cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.1 Other studies found it to help with the prevention of cancer, Alzheimer’s2 and stroke.3
The Mediterranean-style diet is the core of The Fast 800 and all of our recipes follow the principles. With more than 400 moderately low-carb recipes, carefully created by our nutritionist, Gabi, The Fast 800 meal plans are curated for members to enjoy variety, delicious food and good nutrition.
Exercising regularly, alongside a healthy diet, is important for supporting metabolic health and encouraging weight loss. The Fast 800 offers exercise plans, from beginner through to advanced levels, to help you build strength and muscle and improve cardiovascular fitness.
Science tells us that regular exercise brings huge benefits, such as:
- fat loss and muscle gain;4
- boosted energy;5
- improved mood and mental wellbeing;6 and
- reduced risk of chronic disease.7
